AVweb's Question of the Week ...
Last week, AVweb asked about the new Sport Pilot rules lurking in our near future. Most AVweb readers who responded are open to the new rules — 34% of you welcoming Sport Pilot with open arms, while another 33% say that what's good for the industry is good for the individual pilot (regardless of whether the Sport Pilot rules apply to him). 26% of you said we don't need new rules (or a new category) at all, just better enforcement of the ultralight rules we already have. And a cautious 6% of readers said there could be benefits to Sport Pilot, but the new rules will certainly be a double-edged sword.
A couple of weeks ago, AVweb asked the loaded question, "Are professional pilots overpaid?" (About 2/3 of you said "no.") This week, just to be fair to everyone in the aviation industry, we want to know what you really think about the salaries of CFIs: Are flight instructors overpaid?
